Newt Gingrich: I Doubt There's Any Liberal Conspiracy on Border
News Max ^ | July 6 2014 | Greg Richter

Posted on 07/06/2014 8:10:20 AM PDT by PoloSec

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich doesn't seem to share the view of many of his fellow Republicans that Democrats are happy to see the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the border.

"I doubt very much if Sen. Dianne Feinstein who authored that particular amendment to the bill that passed in 2008 meant for it to potentially next year have 140,000 people – legally – crossing the border under the law," Gingrich said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

But Gingrich also said something must be done to curb the rise in illegal border crossers. The number of unaccompanied minors from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras crossing the border from Mexico has doubled since last year, with more than 52,000 caught since October.

A conspiracy would require at least the pretense of secrecy. This is being done right in front of our (and Newt’s) eyes.

Newt get your head out of your ash. This is a Uniparty conspiracy involving the Democrat Anti American wing and the feckless Republican wing of the party.

Translation: there will be lots more words and speeches on the problem but no meaningful actions. Nothing will be done, as usual.

I paraphrase, but this is the gist of it.

Hannity: Why did you do the bit with Pelosi? What was the reasoning?

Gingrich: It was stupid.

Hannity: Okay. He’s answered the question.

Yes, Sean, he did say it was stupid, which is obvious. He still hasn’t said WHY he did it.

Actually the only part of a conspiracy that has to be secret is the cooperation of those involved.

Individual actions can be out in the open.

No conspiracy? Maybe not, but there has been plenty of collusion extending far beyond political parties.

That's what I thought just reading the headline. After reading the article headline sounds a little misleading.

I wonder about that, too. It's being passed off to the Obama cheerleaders as something good for them....how dumb and/or complicit can they be?

Who benefits? The Chamber of Commerce crowd which wants cheap labor to replace US citizen minorities and to keep wages depressed and full time workers unnecessary. Who else benefits? The political class that's bought and paid for by the global and US elite.

Inner city blacks and lower-income whites and legal hispanics should be up in arms. This influx, both the teenagers and their moms, are even cheaper less demanding competition for jobs. They're moving into homes with relatives, adding to high density populations and likely to upset the fragile balance that there is between ethnic groups. When they hit the schools next year, in many locations it will mean hundreds more Spanish speaking students with low academic skills and carrying diseases into crowded poorly ventilated classrooms from which US students haven't developed immunities. Safety nets, medical access, public transportation, handout programs are going to be overwhelmed. The older kids will be targets to retcruit to criminal activity, and many will be victims of crime.

I understand why the 'pubs (especially govs) who pretend to be on our side and talk a lot haven't mobilized concerned citizens and militias along the border and directly defied the feds by not letting the invaders into the US....they're just playing with us and want to get their Chamber of Commerce paycheck. But the blacks, where chaos is just one heat wave away in inner city fragile neighborhoods?....WHAT IS THEIR PROBLEM.

I'm glad I'm as old as I am. Any challenges us folks in our late 60s (and older) faced were reversible and we could do things to greatly increase our odds of perservering. None of the things happening now on both the federal and global level are reversible. A big reason for this is nobody who makes it to a leadership position knows how to act quickly and intelligently in fast-moving catastrophic situations.

This kills me. I have so much respect and admiration for Newt’s giant brain, but he consistently goes on these little flights of fancy, conveyed through damning words and damning pictures. He needs to be a vp running mate paired with someone with common sense. I don’t know if his ego would let him play 2nd fiddle though.

The lack of action to stop the flood of immigrants on local and federal level is proof enough to me that there’s a conspiracy. The country is ruled by fascists, liars all.

I think he is right. Dianne Feinstein did likely not have anything to do with this invasion. But it is a certainty that Obama’s thugs did invite this situation with malice towards our country.

Funny how liberal policies and actions can bring about human misery and national disaster, and not be dropped on the liberal doorstep, because we see no conspiracy; hear no conspiracy, and speak no conspiracy. Lax border enforcement coupled with the Dream Act and visions of amnesty were bound to end like this, and there were Democrat and Republican leftists who knew it. A lot of politicians and leftist social planners conspired to give us the situation we have right now.

His political maneuvering is so good 95% of the time, and so bad 5% of the time.

It wasn’t the 2008 bill. It was Obama’s backdoor amnesty of 2012 for the Dreamers (DACA) that set the stage for what is happening now.

Wake up, Newt:

Tht border has been there for around 200 years.

Problems with crime & drugs south of that border have been in place for over 60 years.

Never had this problem before.

Newt- YOU tell me how a kid in diapers can get over 1000 miles without some sort of organization for such???

Come talk to me in MY living room, Newt. I will get you to understand.

Actually, I think Newt’s right. This is an Obama action, not something where the Dems even made a pretense of voting in a bill, and I think a lot of them in that area are finding it a nightmare for their states. It’s making them very unpopular, and the only person who doesn’t care is Herr Dictator himself.

The left is very good at exploiting splits in the GOP, and we should start trying to exploit splits in the Dems. And this is a split - I read that two SW Dems, a mayor and a congressman, criticized Obama publicly on a TV show this morning. That’s a start.

Newt and the GOPe’s are beginning to realize that they are nothing but Eunuch’s in the eyes of the MSM.

The ONLY time ‘they’ get any ‘recognition’ is when they can make some Outlandish statement that essentially embarrasses or even ‘outs’ their true thoughts.

Guess once that ‘hog the spotlight’ bug bites one, it is almost impossible to shed the urge.

Case in point may be the MSM vilifying Nancy Reagan for the 8 years in the WH, generally considered her a ‘nut case’ and worse.

When she opined that one O. North LTCOL USMC(ret) was NOT a good choice to represent VA in the US Senate she was considered a ‘sage’ and person to go to.

Until the next time she dissed the D establishment.
